Moguls Session 16th March

Dear Sharks,
BUMPS BUMPS BUMPS!
Who wants to ski some bumps??
Following enthusiastic response from Sharks skiing moguls, we’re putting forward a proposal for those of you who may want to improve in the bumps.
As you may (or may not!) be aware, we have now run several sessions where we have invited Ian Danby and Ania Wasielewska (England Moguls Coaches) to the Sharks Saturday morning sessions. We have had some really positive feedback, both from members, and from Ian and Ania.
From a Sharks point of view, we see working with Ian and Ania as being a fantastic opportunity for our members to receive tuition from top level coaches.
At the same time, Ian and Ania have spotted that Sharks members have been instructed to ski technically very well.  This gives a solid foundation to taking our technical skiing in to the bumps.
With this in mind, we are looking at running some additional sessions in conjunction with Ian and Ania.  The first of these sessions is set for the 16th March.  The plan is that Ian and Ania will come to the Sharks session between 9 and 11 in the morning.  Anyone interested will then have a short break for refreshments / lunch, then, we will run an additional 2 hours moguls session. You will have an opportunity to practice skiing moguls and, with their support, develop skills that increase your confidence and enjoyment in the bumps. 
The cost of the sessions will be £45.  Please note that this includes the morning Sharks session.  This therefore means that for those who normally pay £29 for the sharks session, you will be getting an additional two hours coaching for just £16.   Not only that, but the price includes a full day pass for the day at Snozone.  This therefore means that should you wish to stay on the snow afterwards, then you can, at no extra cost.  Bargain!
Anyone interested in the session, will need to pay the British Moguls Academy directly by the 8th March.  Details are below; 
Account name: the British Moguls Academy
Account number: 11565541
Sort code: 09-01-29
Once you’ve made a booking, just email mogulsacademy@btinternet.com  saying who will be attending the session, how comfortable they are skiing moguls and what they want out of the session. 
Also, if you have any questions, just send an email to the same address.

Wengen Holiday Update

Hi all you Wengenistas,

We’ve heard quite of you are going to be in the same place at the same time ?!? 🤣🙈👍⛷

When this sort of ‘coincidence’ has arisen before quite a few of us have made the most of this and has a bit of fun. So let’s see if we can continue the tradition and make an impression between us!! If you hadn’t already guessed Sharks peeps ‘randomly’ converging on Wengen = comedy reputation!!

Some of us have decided to do a few things you ‘may’ like to join in with 😂🤣.

Just to paint the picture we’re going to have a fancy dress day on the slopes (weather permitting!!). Superheroes are a huge hit on the slopes, but equally if you’d prefer to dressed as an animal, alien, inflatable ballerina or just don some garish retro gear it’s all actively encouraged!! Feel free to wear it whenever though if you want!!

One evening we’d like to do a ‘strictly some/dum dancing’ evening. We’ve judges lined up and a host with most so all we need now is a few couples ready to strut their stuff and impress (or depress!!). Whether it’s a tango, foxtrot, Charleston, American rough or smooth we don’t care just get yourself a partner preparish for the big night and who knows you could be walking off with the Litter Ball!! 🕺🏻🍾

Finally on the Thursday night, to celebrate the fact that Sharks is 30 years old, Especially for You we’re proposing a fancy dress evening with ‘89’ as the theme and we’d just love you to join us!!! It’s up to you what you wear but as always we’re sure there’ll be an imaginative, creative & hilarious response!! Promises to be a pearler!!

You’ve 3 weeks to gear up !! If you’re struggling for ideas or not sure on anything feel free to ask anyone on the committee or anyone who’s been on this sort of thing before – Be assured making a fool of yourself is positively encouraged, many of us are experts at it!!
😀🦈🎿

Have fun these photos will give you an idea of the sort of thing that would be great to see!!

Keep on skiing!! ⛷🦈😂😳🤣

Pendle Summer Race Camp

Hi All

It’s that time of year again to share information about yet another Pendle Summer Race Camp. Believe it or not, it is now 10 years since Jo and I began running our summer camps at, firstly Rossendale and, more latterly, Pendle (!!)

The camp will be following the usual format and run in the same way as always, following our tried and tested formula, but full details can be found below and attached.

Please feel free to get in touch if you’d like to discuss further,

Benn

Benn Hall

KEY DETAILS:

Pendle Ski Club

£220 for the week

£55 per day

Please feel free to circulate this email/flyer around any friends/colleagues/club members that you think it might be of interest to.

Hopefully this will be of interest again to those who have attended past camps, and indeed to any new racers (or new to the Pendle Summer Camp!) out there who would like to get involved in a 5-day summer ski race camp that brings a mixture of training and fun skiing activities in the middle of August. Any young skier – whether a seasoned racer to perhaps a first-time racer or Saturday club skier – is more than welcome. We always have a range of abilities and a range of ages amongst attendees. But if you have any questions about the suitability of the camp for your child, please do just get in touch.

If you are interested in booking on, please send an email to Benn Hall (bennhall@me.com) to confirm your place. We would also be grateful if you could complete and return the attached booking form and medical form. These can be returned either by post or email (they can be completed electronically if easier). Payment can be made by BACs or cheque/cash.

And, of course, if you have any questions about the camp, please do not hesitate to get in contact either by email or phone (details below).

As always, we look forward to seeing both familiar and new faces alike, and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in August.

Summer Races Information

Hi Sharks

A couple of upcoming Race Events that you may be interested in are as follows:

STOKE – FUN SLALOM EVENT

The next date for Festival Park Ski Clubs Summer Race League is Saturday 16th June. Either pre-register or enter on the day but do remember to e-mail your intent to stokeskiraces@hotmail.com – all the registration details are shown within the Race Poster. Feel free to keep me in the loop so I have an idea of who is attending.

The format will be two individual timed runs through a slalom course to determine how you stand within your age group on the day. You’d then be placed into groups of four according to your quickest timed run for the second session of the day, dual slalom head to head races – very exciting and great fun!

The event is open to all ages and abilities, they’re fun, they’re not pressured and you’d be amongst friends.

ROSSENDALE – FUN SLALOM EVENT

Rossendale have just released their Summer Race League dates – Sundays 15th July, 19th August and 23rdSeptember.

The race format is the same as Stokes but you will need to register through me rather than directly with the club. So if you’d like to register for Rossendale or if you’re new to dry slope slalom racing and you need more information please e-mail mepaul@moonlight-textiles.co.uk or text/message me on: 07774 845 444 (under 18’s please copy in a parent/guardian).

Club Captain Nominations

Dear Sharks,

Our male Club Captain, Oscar Bandmann, will be stepping down from his role of Club Captain at the upcoming AGM, and we are looking for someone to replace him.

The Club Captains sit on the Sharks Ski Club Committee to represent the views of our younger members. They also arrange fun social events, and competitions, throughout the year.

If anyone is interested in becoming the new Club Captain, to work alongside Grace, who is staying on for another year in her role as our female CLub Captain, then please send me your nominations.

We will then organise a vote, and announce the winner at the AGM.

I look forward to hearing from you.
